Ok... I thought this was just bull...pooh, but I just tried it and got 45 seconds on the photoshop test, which I got 1'06 on a while back (post)

A am satisfied with 1GB on my MBP, however everyone will tell you the more Ram the better, it also depends a lot on how much you use the program. Professionals will expect much more than people that just fool around with the program.

I'd say as a rule that it's not really enough, but you can "run" photoshop without problem on 1gig. I currently have 1,5gig ram in my iMac G5, but I could have used more. I'll be getting 2gig ram in my new intel iMac in January (unless they upgrade it further by then).

Sufficient? No. Doable? Yes. It depends on what you're doing, and how long you've got on hand to wait. You can apply a dozen filters to a 1GB image with 1GB RAM on a MacBook, but it'll take you the better part of an hour or more to have it complete.

A good rule of thumb is that PS wants around 2GB RAM and 20-40GB of HD space to be happy. You can use less, but you wait longer. Hardcore editing you're going to want a full free 2GB RAM (since IRC, PS still can't address more than 2GB???WTF??) and an entire seperate scratch disk.

Your milage may vary.
